Chiltern Community Awards

The purpose of the Chiltern District Council Community Awards is to help promote and raise the profile of volunteering. Volunteers across our community help improve the quality of life for many people, young and old, and also contribute greatly to the sense of community that is so prevalent within Chiltern’s towns and villages.

It is important that local volunteers are recognised and celebrated. All people being nominated must be volunteering their services within the Chiltern District area. Do you know someone who has volunteered or given up their own time to give something back to the community? Then why not nominate them for one of the award categories detailed below.
